Yachties & hikers, don't miss out on this hidden gem embedded in the jagged coastline 7 kilometres to the East of Port Andratx- Cala d’Egos. It is accessible only by boat or down a steep, approx. 1.5 km long path along the face of surrounding cliffs. Either way, the reward is worth the effort: a pristine and (most probably) deserted little cove which, on an island like Mallorca with its extensive tourist infrastructure, is something quite exceptional!
You'll find shade under one of the trees right next to the pebbly beach and perfect conditions for diving and snorkelling, but you'll have to lug down your own gear. Also remember to bring your own food and water for the day.
This remote beach is mostly used by locals as it is only accessible by a steep hike down the side of the cliffs or by boat. Either way is worth the effort!
The surrounding cliffs and lack of tourists make this an ideal romantic spot for popping the wedding question, celebrating an anniversary or simply getting off the beaten path for a day of retreat.
How to get there #
Located on the Club de Vela side of Port Andratx, you drive passed Mon Port Hotel & Spa and wind around to the top of the hill after you see a few mega mansions. No signage exists for this remote place that the locals love. But just keep exploring, driving to the top of the hill and you'll see a parking area across from the gated mansion on top. Park on the left, walk up and see the vistas of the Med. Follow the path down to the sea.
AM Tip: Go to the bathroom before driving here. No facilities exist. Take a large bottle of water and a snack if you want to lounge on the beach for a while. A good backpack is a must.
Thinking of popping the question? Celebrating a romantic anniversary? Need a day of peaceful seclusion?
